Live Review: Drake @ Philips Arena

[ 0 ] November 11, 2013 |

Picture Book & Live Review: The Weeknd @ The Fox Theatre October 1st

[ 0 ] October 2, 2013 |

TONIGHT’S SHOW CONTAINS MATURE CONTENT. Fox Theatre spelled that out on papers positioned around the venue entrance.

“Isn’t this a trip?” No Age drummer/vocalist Dean Spunt asked, checking out the Paul Robeson Theatre. Nestled inside Atlanta’s Arts Exchange, the theatre looked like it could host the plays of a grungy Max Fischer – a pleasantly dingy space within an equally dingy, repurposed elementary school. The work of young artists and two small […]

Live Review: Christopher Owens @ The EARL June 19th

[ 0 ] June 20, 2013 |

Christopher Owens approached the stage in a way appropriate to the amount of people in The EARL – casually. Sixty or so fans gathered around the stage, where on a further elevated platform the gaunt songwriter took a seat and eased into Girls deep cut, “Solitude,” the first of many he’d perform in a show […]

Like The Weeknd before them, Californian quintet The Neighbourhood debuted their music shrouded in mystery. They chose not to disclose their identities, instead hiding behind an intriguing visual theme. Everything’s black and white – their albums, their press photos…they even claim to play “black and white” music.   Formed by Jesse Rutherford in the fall […]
